A cold, gray eye shadow is perfect for both everyday make-up and party make-up, and I was now going to show a super simple everyday make-up with such a gray eye shadow, and tomorrow you will see how I can very easily turn it into a party make-up instead :)
It's all based on the fact that a gray sweep is basically a lighter variant of a classic black smokey eye make-up. It therefore becomes bright as an everyday make-up and in everyday clothes and everyday situations it looks like a "regular everyday make-up", but at more festive events the brain connects it more to a lighter smokey eye.
The eye shape plays a small role when you want this make-up to be perceived more as an everyday make-up, because if you have droopy eyelids or simply such an eye shape where the eyelid is not particularly visible when looking ahead, then you can apply quite a lot of eye shadow without taking remove the everyday feeling. But if you have larger eyelids that are clearly visible all the time, then you can choose a lighter gray eye shadow or not apply so high up, because the more eye shadow that is visible, the more party the make-up feels!
Details that make the make-up look more everyday are not painting eyeliner at all, and / or just putting make-up on the top of the eye. Bright lips make a make-up look more casual as well. Today I have done something in between, I have painted eyeliner but skipped makeup under the eye, and have light pink lips.
Surely the lip color is nice? I have mixed two of Paese Lisptick with argan oil, more specifically shade no.1 and no.35!
The gray eye shadow in Golden Rose Palette Smokey Eyes is incomparably nice, like pencil-gray, and I have also used the light eye shadow to brighten the look a little more.
1. Gray eye shadow on the entire eyelid.
2. Fade the edges.
3. Light eye shadow in the corner of the eye and under the brow.
4. Black eyeliner along the lash line, Makiash Perfection Liner.
5. Black mascara on the upper lashes, Golden Rose Miracle Lash Mascara (Sold Out)
Excuse my generalizations in this post about what is an everyday make-up and what is a party make-up, it is of course individual! :)
